Physicians Turn To Texting PHI For Speed And Efficiency
Currently, communication gaps such as missed calls, phone tag, pagers, time-consuming faxes, overlooked emails, and non-standardized EMR/EHR all result in lost or delayed communication, discoordinated care and poorer patient outcomes. To address this issue, physicians and staff have turned to texting. It’s fast, easy, and efficient, but traditional Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging is non-compliant with regulations under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and can lead up to $1.5 million in fines.
